HARRISBURG, June 26, 2013 – State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams (D-Philadelphia/Delaware) issued the following statement today following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality:

“While the U.S. Supreme Court has led us on an emotional roller coaster this week, those of us who support equality and the full human existence rejoiced today.

“Equal rights should not be qualified by gender, creed, color, ability or sexual orientation and neither should equal opportunity – be that for a consensual, committed relationship; a shot at higher education; or unfettered access to the franchise that codifies our citizenship.

“The court offered a few glimmers of hope today but its rulings this week underscored the vast amount of work that remains if we are to have a more perfect union – in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation,” Williams said.
